Early Christian Terminology in the Death of Peregrinus

(One of the Cynics extolling the virtues of Peregrinus) “These are the two noblest masterpieces that the world has seen—the Olympian Zeus, and Proteus; of the one, the creator and artist was Phidias, of the other, Nature. But now this holy image ( τὸ ἄγαλμα = Peregrinus) is about to depart from amon...

Re: Clement Dated Luke to the Middle of the Second Century

Of course if your reply was tongue in cheek, :cheeky: then my bad for taking it seriously. :confusedsmiley: He wasn't joking and I think - in a sense - it is 'true' i.e. the editor of the 'falsified' Pauline epistles wanted to use Onesimus as a kind of proof for their authenticity and the authentic...

Re: Clement Dated Luke to the Middle of the Second Century

I agree that there is a claim being made. And I think this is the critical 'linchpin' for the Catholic tradition. Did Onesimus of the Ignatian 'know' Paul? If not what is the relationship? To start off with I should note that Onesimus appears all the way 'back' through to the Syriac version of the I...

Making Sense of Justin the Heretic

I have always suspected that 'Justin' in the Refutations of All Heresies is Justin Martyr. But let's first try to figure out what his system is all about. 1. ברוך = 228 = עֵץ חַיִּים (tree of life = baruch) something explicitly referenced by the Refutation " ... and the tree of life is the third of ...

Re: Clement Dated Luke to the Middle of the Second Century

Arist(i)on the author of the second century 'Jason and Papiscus' and known to Papias and the church of Smyrna and Aristo of Pella disciple of the apostles 2. Hermogenes the second century heretic who is identified as being present in ...

Re: Clement Dated Luke to the Middle of the Second Century

And for those who suspect that 'Ariston' had something to do with Irenaeus there is a connection - with Smyrna, Polycarp's locale. We read in the Apostolic Constitutions 7:18: Now concerning those bishops which have been ordained in our lifetime, we let you know that they are these:—James the bishop...
